About

The Red Dog Garage is an eclectic mixture of thoughts and stories about my journey through life. My series Choosing To Be Happy started during a difficult period in my life. During this time I learned to be in the moment when the world appears to be falling apart. My hope is that I bring a little humor to my reader’s day. Provided a thought that encouraged someone who is struggling in life. Help somebody to know that if they feel no one loves them, God does.

This blog was originally started to chronicle the restoration of a Ford Model 66A DeLuxe pickup truck. After two spine surgeries it was no longer safe to continue this project. Being the type that enjoy working on cars that are fun to drive, a 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser GT HIGH OUTPUT made its way into the garage. Vehicles of all types come with letter and number combinations, which are usually found on the rear, leaving us to wonder what they mean while we sit in traffic. The term GT comes from the Italian phrase “Gran Turismo” or “Grand Touring”. The GT badge was first used in the late 1920’s. The 2004 PT Cruiser GT HIGH OUTPUT uses a 2.4 liter inter-cooled turbo charged engine that produces 220 hp and 240 ft/lb of torque. Not too many people ordered them with the optional Getrag G288 heavy-duty manual transaxle (normally the automatic trans is optional). This GT had always been parked in the garage, came with a complete service history from the original dealership and is in near perfect condition.

I believe that we are all part of the human race and encourage others to  check the “other” box and write in “human”.
